Click on the links under each product description and it will take you right to the website where you can purchase it. 



     First the grooming comb! Such a necessary item. I love this one and have three myself!

This is a great little travel play pen that I take with me when we go to Grandmas house for the weekend. If you have two or more dogs, I suggest getting the bigger size, but for one dog, this is perfect. I love it! When I purchased this originally it was around 100$! I saw it is on sale for just around 30$! So get it soon!



      This is Gate System I recommend for everyone to buy. I really don't suggest getting those little kennels and putting them in it when you are potty training. Puppies do not have control of their bladders until they are between 5-7 months old. So they may have quite the accident and you will have quite the mess. I recommend getting this gate system, or one like it. You can put down old towels and place a dog bed in there. Along with their food and water dishes and toys. Then at the very front of the gate where they come out place the pee pad. That is where they will run to come out and see you and that is where they will be prone to go potty. It is such a better choice than kenneling, but of course the decision comes down to what you want to do with your puppy. :)

MidWest Exercise Pen – you can get it on Amazon.com for around 36-40$ not bad!

I found these dog beds and the reviews were insane for them! So I ordered two... I thought... why not?! 

My dogs won't leave them!!! They LOVE them, they are so soft! My oldest daughter said... mom! I need a bed like this! HAHA 

I love them, Washed them and air dried and they are perfect! 

We also have two new pups Mulan and Mufasa who dig the heck out of them and they are still standing.. that is a true measure of a good bed! LOL

I highly recommend them!

Dog beds are super important for your puppy. Just like us, they need a place to sleep and the first few weeks they are home with you, they will sleep a lot. They are still babies, I would say even as they grow older they will spend half the day in their bed. OR if they are really lazy like my Bailey it will be more like 75% of their day. LOL

       I love these water bottles! The puppies when they are little can drown in the water dishes, so I decided to try these bottles. The puppies love them and they are safe, clean and wonderful!

These Shih Tzu's will shove their entire face in the water bowl and it makes such a mess and then their beard can smell and get crusty. I just really like these water bottles so much better. I no longer use bowls for any of my Shih Tzu's, I only use these. 

Your puppy will already be started on these LIXIT water bottles, you can buy them on Amazon.com or at Petco. Not sure if PetSmart has them, but for sure the other two places do. I am also attaching a link for the water bottle cleaner. I love it.

Puppy Pee Pads! This is the best invention ever. I LOVE these things. They are a life saver when potty training. I have also found that puppies love to and think it is so much fun to rip these up! So, I found this awesome little pee pad holder at Pet Co. Now when I place it in there and connect the latches they cannot rip it up! So, you can see the pee marks on it too. They use it and love it. It makes me happy!

LOVE these diapers! They are great for when we are potty training and on the move. I have taken my Minnie out to Orthodontist appointments for my son or down to Moms for Sunday dinner and we put these on in case of accidents. Because let’s face it, potty training is hard enough at home and then if you leave to an unknown environment they get even more confused. So these diapers are great to have on hand. AND they are cute too!

This is my dogs and puppies most favorite food. I start the puppies on this at about 4 weeks old. The kernels are super small and easy for them to eat or "GUM" when they are teething. I recommend staying on this brand, but if for some reason you want to switch, it is totally fine, just slowly add in whatever you are going to give your puppy with this. I will give you 1 bag of this food that should last about a month. So slowly add in whatever dog food you are going to give your puppy to this. Also, just leave it out all day. Shih Tzu's do not typically over eat. So always leave out food and water so they can eat and drink when they need.

10.   Every puppy needs good chew toys. You need to help them through their teething process. They will be getting in their adult teeth when they live with you. You may even find teeth on the floor or stuck in their toys. Do not worry about it, it is totally normal. I even had a lady who adopted one puppy from me save the tooth in her doggy scrapbook! So cute! Every dog needs their teeth brushed. This is the simplest way I have found to do that. This is the Finger Tooth Brush. I LOVE IT! It is really hard to try and brush your dog’s teeth with a long stick tooth brush. They DO NOT like it! BUT they like to chew on your fingers as you will soon find out, so you place the fingerbrush on your finger stick some beef smelling paste on it and it is so easy!

Just like you and I, your dog needs a multi-vitamin. You can try and get them to eat them plain, sometimes they won’t, so wrap it in some meat and they will not know the difference. 4 of my dogs will eat this plain. It does smell like a puppy treat, so that is good as well. The others I just wrap it in meat.

This is a way fun item that I found for my girls. These are not the cheap flimsy bows that you find a lot. They are strong and can be used over and over. I love them. The bows have tags on them and you just pull them off. Do not worry about breaking the band, it is strong and can uphold a lot. I have used the same bows on my girls 6 different times now and they don't show any wear or tear. So I highly recommend these to anyone looking to grow out their puppy’s top knot.

Ear cleaning solution. Sometimes puppies can get ear infections. So this is a good thing to use to help prevent that. Usually I wash my dogs once a week. I just don't like that "Dog" smell and so I will give them a nice bath usually every Friday. Before I do that, I will clean their Anal glands and then clean their ears as well. All you do is just squirt some in the ear, rub it around and around then take a cloth and wipe it out. Also, the hair in the ears is very fine. You can just pull it straight out. It is very simple, you just grab the hair with your thumb and fingers and pull it out. It does not hurt them at all. This will also help to prevent ear infections and to keep the ears clean.

 Now, this is kind of gross, so brace yourselves! Shih Tzu's do have a tendency to eat their own poops. Now, my husband calls it a gift, not having to clean up after a dog because they do it themselves. He will ask them sometimes how their "scooby snack" was... so gross... I however think it is super nasty, so I asked my Vet Dr. Anderson what I could do about this. He told me to try this little powder. It comes in packets and you sprinkle 1/4 of the packet on their food twice a day. It makes their poop taste "gross" if you can imagine ever it being yummy in the first place!! UGH! Sometimes they will not want to eat the powder on the food, so I will sprinkle it on a piece of Deli Turkey and wrap it up and feed it to them. This way I am sure to get it down the hatch. It usually take 2-3 days to stop the nasty "Scooby Snack" eating

15. I recently purchased a grooming table, it literally has been the best thing I have ever owned and I SO wish I had ordered one sooner. I love this and I know you will too, if you plan to do your own grooming or just clean up work in between grooming I highly recommend getting this table!

If you are looking for a great belly band to keep your pup from peeing, when you travel or are potty training, get these. You will not find anything better for a boy dog.

These are the diapers I use for my females when we are traveling to grandmas, or staying at a hotel, also when I am potty training my new pups and are not able to keep my eyes on them at all times. I LOVE these diapers, they are inexpensive and disposable. They keep all the pee in... and I know my parents are very grateful for them when we go to their house for visits.

This is a backpack we wear when we go on long trips, Minnie enjoyed this while we visited the Grand Canyon in 2017.  I really like how it is made and the stylish colors. It is super cute. It is around 16$ and I would get a large for 12-15 pounds.

absolutely LOVE this Harness, I have them in all colors. They are the best, I suggest getting them in a medium for full grown, you can start out with a small too. Minnie when I first got hers was an x-s and then I got a S and now a medium fits just right. Larger dogs, that over 12 pounds I would say get a Large. But, the great thing about Amazon, you can order it and if it does not fit, send it back and get the right size. I just love Amazon.. I am a little obsessed. lol! It is about 19$ not to bad!

f you are having issues with your dog barking and have tried everything from closing their mouth with your fingers and saying NO barks! To the water bottle squirts, this is the next step... this barking collar is amazing... I have literally tried everything with Simba, he is the man of the house - many sister wives... ha ha and he has to tell everyone who walks by that this is house and he rules it. So, I found this and the loud beeping sound has made him quiet right down.. I have not had to use the zapping part at all! I love it, we have had it for about a month and it is literally the best thing I have found. I wish I would have tried this earlier. It is awesome!

This is also for your breeders or adoptive families that feel like your puppy  needs a little more than dog food. I love this puppy formula. I have known some breeders who make their own formula but some of them have had issues, puppies getting sick, some dying... SO I prefer to get what my Vet Dr. Ross Anderson suggested and this is the stuff. I love it and use it every litter to help supplement so the pups do not take too much from the moms.

Below are a bunch of Pictures I took of products I would recommend to purchase for your puppy. 

Not everything is necessary, but it is good to have on hand. 

If you ever have an questions you can always text me or email me at anytime. 801-634-7233 dr.kylepeacock@yahoo.com 



This is Gate System I recommend for everyone to buy. I really don't suggest getting those little kennels and putting them in it when you are potty training. Puppies do not have control of their bladders until they are between 5-7 months old. So they may have quite the accident and you will have quite the mess. 

I recommend getting this gate system, or one like it. You can put down old towels and place a dog bed in there. Along with their food and water dishes and toys. Then at the very front of the gate where they come out place the pee pad. That is where they will run to come out and see you and that is where they will be prone to go potty. It is such a better choice then kenneling, but of course the decision comes down to what you want to do with your puppy. :) 




Dog beds are super important for your puppy. Just like us, they need a place to sleep and the first few weeks they are home with you, they will sleep a lot. They are still babies, I would say even as they grow older they will spend half the day in their bed. OR if they are really lazy like my Bailey it will be more like 75% of their day. LOL 




I recently decided to try these LIXIT water bottles out. They work like a charm! The puppies when they are little can drown in the water dishes, so I decided to try these bottles. The puppies love them and they are safe, clean and wonderful!

However, over time you may want to move to a water dish. Sometimes I feel like they may not get their entire thirst quenched, but then again, I have three dogs who prefer and only use the water bottles. So you will have to go by what you feel your puppy likes best. But, just know they are started on these LIXIT water bottles, you can buy them on Amazon.com or at Petco. Not sure if PetSmart has them, but for sure the other two places do. 




Puppy Pee Pads! This is the best invention ever. I LOVE these things. They are a life saver when potty training. I have also found that puppies love to and think it is so much fun to rip these up! So, I found this awesome little pee pad holder at Pet Co. Now when I place it in there and connect the latches they cannot rip it up! So, you can see the pee marks on it too. They use it and love it. It makes me happy! 




These are puppy treats that I give my dogs. The Greenies are my favorite. They not only clean their teeth but help with puppy breath! 

You are probably wondering why there is Calcium there on the right, well that is for my pregnant and nursing dogs. I place it in the pill crusher (little blue and white thing next to it) and crush it up and put it in a piece of turkey or well cooked deer and give it to them. It helps when they are pregnant with their babies and nursing of course takes a lot out of mommy. 




LOVE these diapers! They are great for when we are potty training and on the move. I have taken my Minnie out to Orthodontist appointments for my son or down to Moms for Sunday dinner and we put these on in case of accidents. Because lets face it, potty training is hard enough at home and then if you leave to an unknown environment they get even more confused. So these diapers are great to have on hand. AND they are cute too! 




This is my dogs and puppies most favorite food. I start the puppies on this at about 4 weeks old. The kernels are super small and easy for them to eat or "GUM" when they are teething. 

I recommend staying on this brand, but if for some reason you want to switch, it is totally fine, just slowly add in whatever you are going to give your puppy with this. I will give you 1 bag of this food that should last about a month. So slowly add in whatever dog food you are going to give your puppy to this. Also, just leave it out all day. Shih Tzu's do not typically over eat. So always leave out food and water so they can eat and drink when they need.  




This is the only thing I use on my dogs. I get it on Amazon.com that is where I find the best prices and I usually buy the biggest ones as they last the longest. They are the best for sure and my dogs smell sooooo yummy for days! 




Every puppy needs good chew toys. You need to help them through their teething process. They will be getting in their adult teeth when they live with you. You may even find teeth on the floor or stuck in their toys. Do not worry about it, it is totally normal. I even had a lady who adopted one puppy from me save the tooth in her doggy scrapbook! So cute!

They love to chew on wood, this is something I have found. Out of all my dogs I have three that have chewed on the wood frame around my door. So I decided I would buy wood and let them chew that. WELL that solved that! They no longer chew on the door. BUT, plan ahead and get good chewing toys for your puppy. They will need them.  




Every dog needs their teeth brushed. This is the most simple way I have found to do that. This is the Finger Tooth Brush. I LOVE IT! 

It is really hard to try and brush your dogs teeth with a long stick tooth brush. They DO NOT like it! BUT they like to chew on your fingers as you will soon find out, so you place the fingerbrush on your finger stick some beef smelling paste on it and it is so easy! 

I highly recommend this product! 




Just like you and I, your dog needs a multi-vitamin. You can try and get them to eat them plain, sometimes they wont, so wrap it in some meat and they will not know the difference. 4 of my dogs will eat this plain. It does smell like a puppy treat, so that is good as well. The others I just wrap it in meat.  




This is a way fun item that I found for my girls. These are not the cheap flimsy bows that you find a lot. They are strong and can be used over and over. I love them. The bows have tags on them and you just pull them off. Do not worry about breaking the band, it is strong and can uphold a lot. 

I have used the same bows on my girls 6 different times now and they don't show any wear or tear. So I highly recommend these to anyone looking to grow out their puppies top knot.




Ear cleaning solution. Sometimes puppies can get ear infections. So this is a good thing to use to help prevent that. 

Usually I wash my dogs once a week. I just don't like that "Dog" smell and so I will give them a nice bath usually every Friday. Before I do that, I will clean their Anal glands and then clean their ears as well. 

All you do is just squirt some in the ear, rub it around and around then take a cloth and wipe it out. Also, the hair in the ears is very fine. You can just pull it straight out. It is very simple, you just grab the hair with your thumb and fingers and pull it out. It does not hurt them at all. This will also help to prevent ear infections and to keep the ears clean. 




 Now, this is kind of gross, so brace yourselves! 

Shih Tzu's do have a tendency to eat their own poops. Now, my husband calls it a gift, not having to clean up after a dog because they do it themselves. He will ask them sometimes how their "scooby snack" was... so gross... I however think it is super nasty, so I asked my Vet Dr. Anderson what I could do about this. He told me to try this little powder. It comes in packets and you sprinkle 1/4 of the packet on their food twice a day. It makes their poop taste "gross" if you can imagine ever it being yummy in the first place!! UGH!

Sometimes they will not want to eat the powder on the food, so I will sprinkle it on a piece of Deli Turkey and wrap it up and feed it to them. This way I am sure to get it down the hatch. 

It usually take 2-3 days to stop the nasty "Scooby Snack" eating.




Okay I think this is all the products I will upload for now, but if you have any questions for me feel free to call or text me anytime! I hope this answered a lot of your questions!
